Martin Luther lived in a time when the grip of human tradition on the church (along with all its errors) was so tight it seemed nothing could turn the tide. Risking his life in the process, Luther held tight to the Word and its truth and the power of the Word literally changed the world. It can certainly change our world too!
Tentatio is the testing, temptation, and trial that occur when God and his Word intersect with us and our world. God uses tentatio to drive us away from self and to his promises alone.
Sermon Text: Psalm 119:65-72
